Circumferential MFL joins pipe integrity line

March 3, 2012

Circumferential magnetic flux leakage (MFL) inspection technology, which enables pipeline operators to identify anomalies in pipeline long seams and more effectively manage the risk associated with cracks in long seam welds, has been added to the Baker Hughes pipeline service portfolio.

The company recently acquired the assets and circumferential/transverse field (TFI) MFL technology of Intratech Inline Inspection Services. With this technology, now to be produced in the larger diameter pipeline sizes, complete with speed control and inertial navigation capabilities, the Baker Hughes Process and Pipeline Services group is looking to assist operators with locating specific pipeline seam threats, such as hook cracks, lack of fusion and long narrow-axial corrosion.
